Hello.  It’s Jim.  I would like to introduce you to my best friend.  Firefox!


Yes, that’s a poppy.   But if you would take a short flight of fancy with me, perhaps you can imagine my best friend in that picture.  Beautiful and elegant.  Seemingly simple yet quite complex.  That’s her.  She’s shares the world with me.DSC02696

We’re in it together, Firefox and me.  She’s my best friend.  She’s also my mate, my lover, mother of my children and my lawfully wedded wife.  We share the curious light in this beautiful place.???????????????????????????????

Together, we watch the gardens grow.???????????????????????????????

Together, we watch the flowers bloom.???????????????????????????????

Together, we watch them fade.???????????????????????????????

Together, we discuss the gardens.  Their growth, their bloom and their presentation on this wacky blog called In Jim’s Garden.DSC02191

It has become apparent to Firefox that the blog community includes some really wonderful people, all of whom are sharing their perspectives of the world.  She has now joined our ranks.  Please welcome Firefox and check out her blog

Initially I think she plans to share pictures of her bouquets.???????????????????????????????

Why wouldn’t she?DSC04518

They are awesome.DSC04494

She makes quite a few of them.???????????????????????????????

They are well worth checking out.  The details are amazing.???????????????????????????????

But, knowing Firefox like I do, I suspect that she will branch out beyond bouquets quite quickly.  She lives in this rich environment and she sees the world in her own way.  She finds things like these little red fungi fascinating.???????????????????????????????



She wonders why I don’t show pictures of things like these beautiful cherry tomatoes.???????????????????????????????

She really wonders why I haven’t been showing pictures of the gourds as they blossom and produce their little fruit.???????????????????????????????

Seriously.  She can’t believe I haven’t been sharing pictures like this every week.???????????????????????????????

Even when it comes to flowers, I suspect Firefox will share a different perspective.  A more gentle perspective.DSC02024

A perspective which celebrates the curious geometry of nature.DSC02202

Yet remains true to the essential elements of life and beauty.???????????????????????????????

Yep.  I know Firefox and I am just sure she will show you her own interesting perspective.???????????????????????????????

I have no idea how often she will post.  At her convenience, I hope.  But if you find this curious piece of the earth we call In Jim’s Garden interesting (she came up with the name, by the way), you will most likely find Firefox’s perspective of it to be quite engaging.  Check it out. 

Meanwhile, she and I will continue to sit of an evening and discuss life, family, gardening and the curious people we meet, including those we meet through blogging.???????????????????????????????

Thank you for sharing our world.  I really appreciate it.  I couldn’t find a really awesome, amazing picture of us, but I did find a picture of another couple who has been spending the summer here.  I think they are cute and I think they look a little like Firefox and me, together.???????????????????????????????

Cheers.  Have a wonderful day!  Remember to follow Firefox.   🙂

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you love this post. It is my genuine pleasure to celebrate her in such a way. And yes, the red chairs in the woods are looking good in that picture.

    1. Thank you Sharon. Yes, we are traveling a beautiful journey together and the beautiful surroundings certainly don’t hurt. Have a wonderful day. 🙂

  5. That is very interesting. I have never thought of tendrils as dried. Keep on an eye on this blog, as I’m puzzling on another post about the gourds. They and their tendrils have been most interesting and entertaining for me this summer. Cheers. 🙂

  6. Oh Jim, how blessed you are to be able to share your passion with your spouse. I can only dream that one day, my spouse would share my love of flowers and the beauty of the outdoors with me. I can’t wait to see Firefox’s blog posts. I will definitely follow her!

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, it is better together. The blog world thing will be more fun as well, doing it together. Thanks for the kind comment. You make me feel quite blessed, indeed. Have a wonderful day. 🙂

    1. Thanks Tilly. She will present her own, curious take on the blog world, I’m sure. She’s quite insightful and should provide a nice balance to my blog, as she does in our day to day lives. 🙂
